GP Week : Issue 63
MOTOGP CHAT >> I am very competitive yes, but not too much. When I play cards or football or the table soccer in my house with my friends, I don't like to make anything dirty. I want to make clean. I give all, 100 percent, and if I lose I am quite angry, but not something big. So sometimes I lose quite a lot! You have a big new boat -- are you the captain? Do you drive it? I have the licence, but usually don't drive. I have my friend that drives for me. But I am able to park, to come out of the park, I can come in the park. So if I want to take the boat alone, is possible. What is your other favourite way to relax? I like sleep, a lot, to take power. And at night alone in the gym is good. And stay with my friends, play soccer or cards, or Gran Turismo on the Playstation ... I like to try to race something to relax. Money -- you've made a lot. Is there ever enough? For my lifestyle, I think I have already enough money. I don't race for money, but I am rich. The important is don't become too obsessed with the money. I like to manage my money, now especially in the last two years. And I am happy when I read how much money I have. (laughs). Do you still ever go out in disguise? More in the past -- with a wig, a moustache, sunglasses. Was funny, but di cult ... because if one recognises you, then Aah -- Valentino! Now I go more normal, I don't want to fight this. You mentioned 10 more years or racing? Gee! Yeah, but not with motorcycles. I have to decide before June next year about my future with motorcycles: if I continue, if I continue with Yamaha, if I change ... Before, I think I never go out from Yamaha ... but now with this situation with Lorenzo I think Yamaha will have to be a decision. But I don't know also if I continue. After that I will have some other years with the car, I think. But more relaxed. For sure the main career will be with bikes. 19
